I have a hub site with 3 sub sites. From the main hub site, Search returns results from all hub sites. Searches in a sub-site returns results only from that site.

How can I configure the Search in a sub-site to return results from all sites that are part of the hub?

Also, how could I have results from the whole instance?

Thanks !

At this point, search in modern sites is not configurable. So,

  • Option 1 is to train users to click the breadcrumb on the search page to get to the broader results.

  • Option 2 is to create a custom spfx search box that redirects to the results page with the desired scope.

  • Option 3 is to redirect users to a classic search center, configured as desired.

  • Thank you for your response. Option 1 is the way we a going. Commented Oct 26, 2018 at 19:02
